    How to modify 9mm weapon cock

    At the shooting range, I struggling to pull and cock my 9mm. I really like my 9mm, but I may have to trade it for something easrier to cock.

    Any idea will help, thanks in advance...

    My plans, I will take it to the gun-smith to adjust the cock spring and ask them to add something like a small D- RING to help with cocking.

    Is it a revolver or semi-automatic? If semi-automatic, anything added to the hammer would not work as the slide has to clear everything when it recoils. If you have a revolver, you can do almost anything to the hammer as it only moves forward once cocked.

    I hope this helps.

    I also had this problem. I learned that if you cock the hammer first the slide is much easier to rack.

    Google 'slide pull charging handle'.

    I've seen them for Glocks and XDs and M&P handguns chambered in 9mm.

    Have you tried cocking the trigger when it's still in the holster, assuming you're wearing one? The holster helps support the gun for you. Another option is to use the bottom part of you palm, near the wrist, instead of your fingers to cock the trigger.

    Or is your problem racking the slide, which is a completely different animal?

    Clever. Who would have thought there was a big enough market?

    They make side mounted ones, too, for one handed operation - against a table, or handrim, etc. Slide pulls were originally developed by a guy with arthritis, iirc.

    Also, some rear sights are now being made high and flat on the front side to enable one handed slide racking, against a solid object.

    Cocking the hammer first compresses the firing pin and/or main spring which takes a little weight off the slide. So does fitting/smithing the slide stop with precision, to operate smoothly.

    And, choosing recoil spring weight with some thought, too. Based on a specific firearm, magazine, and ammo load.

    You may well be able to go to a lower weight spring.
